After a brief forward and introduction it is on to the recipes. First up is "Appetizers: Party Starters" beginning on page 2. There is a brief introduction to the section followed by 15 recipes. This is where you go for "White Bean and Sun-Dried Tomato Dip" (page 5), "Chicken Nachos" (page 9), or "Crispy Potato Skins" (page 15) and many others. Pictures of finished dishes are few and far between, text is small and light in shading, and no nutritional information is included. Directions, ingredient lists, and servings are included as are small highlighted tip style boxes using the logo "Dishin' With David" containing various information. The information in these boxes is not throwaway information, but actual quality information well worth your time to read.
"Biscuits, Muffins and Quick Breads: Our Daily Bread" comes next on pages 26-43. "Southern Buttermilk Biscuits" (pages 28-29), "Blueberry Muffins with Streusel Topping" (pages 34-35) and "Sour Cream Coffee Cake" (Page 38) are here. A number of the recipes in this chapter would easily fir in the next chapter devoted to breakfast and brunch.
"Breakfast and Brunch: Rise and Shine!" features 13 recipes that should hit the spot.Read more ›
This is a cookbook of comfort foods. We all have our favorite comfort foods from our own families. David gives us his with a Southern twist. Many of the recipes are calorie and fat laden, but they are not foods for everyday. These are foods and recipes for when you feel the need of a little comfort. It used to be that we were rewarded with food. Good grades, a nice chocolate cake, fried chicken, or whatever dish was 'yours'. It is different now, but I still feel, at times, the need for some foods that make me feel happy.
This cookbook is filled with glorious pictures that reveal the old fashioned food we remember. The chapters have pretty borders, the photographs will cause hunger pains.The recipes are laid out with an easy to read manner. Macaroni and cheese, 'God's most perfect dish', David calls it. It has five types of cheese, mozzarella, Monterey Jack, Parmesan, cheddar and Velveeta. I would leave the velvetta out, but that is personal preference. David tops his with one of his favorite foods, bacon. His recipes contain: Southern fried chicken, green beans with garlic and bacon, cheeseburger dumplings and cheeseburger casserole, and Mom's mayonnaise drop biscuits. One of my favorite recipes is the Sour Cream Coffee Cake, I have been making this for years,, so I was glad to see it included. I have made his Fried Rice with veggies, delicious and easy, and Baked Beans, too sweet for my taste, would cut down on the brown sugar and ketchup. The Baked Corn pudding is so good and could be a Thanksgiving staple.Read more ›
